Publisher's summary

Terri Slade learned the hard way to play by her own set of rules. Rule number one, maintain control. Rule number two, never fall in love. Then she met Gavin Johnson and broke both her rules.

Gavin Johnson has lived a charmed life full of adventure. In Terri he thinks he's found a kindred spirit and even considers settling down. But when the truth about her past is revealed, their perfect relationship falls apart, and Gavin's left to wonder if he ever really knew her at all.

Great Series!

This has been a great series so far! I absolutely loved Gavin's story. The narrator did an amazing job. He really put on a performance.

Just as good listening as reading!

I fell in love with the Johnson series from the first book featuring Ivy and Lucas! in this story Gavin the never going to settle down one is captured by Terri an independent woman who is finally enjoying her worth and is also best friends wit his brother Trent's woman. they go through the pangs of a new relationship while Terri hides her not so nice past until she is called out on it and their fragile relationship implodes. Everything after that works to bring them to a point where the love the have for each other is challenged by someone from her past seeking revenge. Gavin returns at the nick of time to save Terri and deal with the revenge seeking ex boyfriend of Terri! Throughout this story one is captured, held in suspense then able to gleefully exhale when it all comes to a good end for Gavin and Terri.

Another great story

I love Gavin’s personality and his free spirit. The story line was interesting and kept me listening to the entire book nonstop. This is an excellent series. Michael Pauley did a great job of bringing all of the characters to life. Looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.

Strong, intense, hard . . .

If you have read the other books in the Johnson Family then you have met Gavin. You know of his detachment from his family. You know he disappears regularly. Well let me say. I am so excited that I read this one. It was the last one in the series for now, but I have to say that it had it all that I was wanting and didn't know.

Terri was Gavin's match in many ways. She gave what she got and sometimes more. She could hold her own and knew what she wanted. I found this read to be the best one of the Johnson Family. I was holding on to my tablet with tight fingers and baited breathe for the next tap on the screen to get to the next page. I have to say YES! OH My YES.

Michael Pauley did a good job with bring the males and females to life and given them each individuality.
